Jan. 20, 2020


In his bio in the Grande Peace Athletic Club program Rhys Doyle was asked what he felt teammates would say about him.

His analysis was: “Skilled forward and leader”.

On the weekend that description was apropos.

His skill and leadership helped the GPAC Boston Pizza Storm battle the visiting Edmonton United Cycle club to a 3-3 draw on Sunday.

Doyle, with 13 following two on Sunday, has the most goals on the team after 24 games. The 5-foot-9, 153-pound Charles Spencer High School student is tied for second in team points with 17.

Sam Antonio also scored for BP on Sunday while Connor Stojan made 25 saves.

On Saturday, Brody West had the lone goal and Tye Georgeson made 46 saves in a 3-1 loss to Edmonton CAC.

BP sits in 12th place in the North Division of the Alberta Minor Midget Hockey League with 12 points on three wins and six ties - 25 back of division-leading Sherwood Park Squires.

Next BP action is this weekend when they visit the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers Saturday and the Lloydminster Bobcats on Sunday.

It was a light schedule of regular season games for GPAC teams on the weekend. Only three teams were in action and four games played.

Mason Kyllo, Spence Lloyd, Tyler Buchberger and Jayden Gordey had the goals and Tyler Burwash made 33 stops.

The Trackers host PDD on Sunday.

The Dreger Racing Team Storm of the Edmonton Rural Bantam AA Hockey League dropped a 6-2 decision to the Peace River Sabres on Sunday.

Isaiah Wilson and Alex Scheck scored the goals and Keagen Kelln made 28 saves in that game.

Saturday Dreger is at the Wainwright Polar Kings and Sunday they visit the Camrose Vikings.

The other ERBAAHL GPAC team, Higson Dental Group Storm, were idle on the weekend but host the Fort McMurray Oil Barons twice this weekend - 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday in the Crosslink County Sportsplex in Clairmont.

They have an 11-8-6 record for 28 points and are in second place in the Charger North Division, four points back of division-leading Lloydminster Bobcats.
